Media Monitoring and Fact-Checking in the Western Balkans
CRTA built capacities of its partners from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and Montenegro for conducting media monitoring in their respective countries and using the fact-checking as an efficient tool for combating fake news, misinformation and propaganda. Through the practical component of the capacity building programme, CRTA conducted the one-month media monitoring activity in all four countries – Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and Montenegro. This joint venture for the first time provided an initial insight into the regional picture of the EU influence, but as well the influence of other parties, and the presence and spread of propaganda, fake news and misinformation in the region.
